In brief: Acid reflux
This taste is also known as "water brash" and is commonly associated with acid reflux.
Many people describe it as a sour taste. Do not lay down soon after meals, elevate the head of your bed/use pillows and avoid large/spicy meals to help cut down on similar symptoms.

also avoid fried, fatty foods (including chocolate), acidic foods/drinks like lemon, lime, OJ, soda pop, coffee: they relax the ring muscle at the end of the esophagus which tries to prevent stomach contacts from refluxing. some meds can cause heartburn (aspirin, Inderal, metoprolol, tetracycline); so take all meds with full glass of liquid (water, preferably) and don't lie down for at least 15 mi
